About me

Hi! My name is Charlotte and I am a third year English student at the University of Nottingham. I chose to progress my studies by going to university because of my deep love of literature and the feeling that I wasn't quite finished studying it yet. I had some wonderfully inspiring teachers at school to whom I credit for engaging me in this subject and encouraging my studies.

Hi! My name is Charlotte and I am a third year English student at the University of Nottingham. I chose to progress my studies by going to university because of my deep love of literature and the feeling that I wasn't quite finished studying it yet. I had some wonderfully inspiring teachers at school to whom I credit for engaging me in this subject and encouraging my studies. I hope to follow in their footsteps and inspire more young people to enjoy working hard whether it is in English or Drama as these are the two areas I will be tutoring. I hope to pursue a career in book publishing after I graduate.

I have been tutoring on MyTutor for a year now and have enjoyed hearing about the excellent results my tutees have achieved in their exams this past summer.

About my sessions

My approach to preparing sessions will be completely reliant on the needs of the pupil. In our Free Video Meeting and in the first lesson we have we can pick out the areas you feel you most need my help on and I ask for any recent feedback from teachers if you have that to hand. We can then discuss a course of action for a block of lessons and review where we have got to at the end of this.

My general lesson plan consists of a starter activity and a skill based task, followed by extract...

My approach to preparing sessions will be completely reliant on the needs of the pupil. In our Free Video Meeting and in the first lesson we have we can pick out the areas you feel you most need my help on and I ask for any recent feedback from teachers if you have that to hand. We can then discuss a course of action for a block of lessons and review where we have got to at the end of this.

My general lesson plan consists of a starter activity and a skill based task, followed by extract work where we will read, discuss and annotate the chosen text before responding in an exam style question. At GCSE there are also creative writing sections of the paper and so we will often spend half the lesson or alternate lessons working on this related to the theme of the extract we have studied that week.

I know that one of the things many students struggle with is remembering what exactly needs to be included in each question on each paper which is why it helps a lot that I am very familiar with the 3 main exam boards (Edexcel, AQA and OCR). I read examiners notes after each exam season in order to see where students are losing the most marks and I share this information with students so that they can let me know if they relate to these issues and would like help on them.
